At first I thought it was a gimmick that was just a way to make some extra cash on the cheap for manufacturers. Then I ran a Serpent 4x for the last few months, and it was a great tuning aid. After running that car for a while and seeing the Awesomatix run, I believe that the ARS aid one of the key advantages those kits have over others.

For example, my car was handling great, but was just a little loose on power and through the sweeper. Instead of adding more static rear toe, or soften the suspension, or changing RC, or diff fluid, All I did was increase the rear toe in gain by adding a small shim. Locked the car right up. Allowing me to keep less static rear toe, and all my other settings that were allowing the car to handle so well.

I encountered the same issue. It just lasts me for 2 track days which about 3 packs each. I replaced with tamiya DCJ now.

This is a bit concerning. Good to know that other brand dcj also fits

yea, itís direct fit without any modifications. However, it must go with the whole complete set. The parts is not interchangeable due to the different diameter of the main pin. For 3R one the diameter of the pin is bigger, this is also the main reason which causing the dog bone end become thinner and weaker.

The SSK driveshaft in the 2K18 kit is the same dating back to the original ZERO, there have never been any problems with them before, still going strong in my Ultimate 2014 and no problems in my 2K18
Bullfrog's didn't break ... the pin fell out, my guess the spring clip was not installed properly by the little kindergartners assembling them in china ... I always take mine apart to clean and lube them when building a new kit, I don't like pre-assembled parts.

question: The front steering linkage on the right side the turnbuckle linkage is rubbing the drive belt. I can't see any mistake as everything looks correct from the book and what I've seen in pictures of the frontend. Wondering what I screwed up?

If the balls are correct then check the steering arms on the steering rack, they are either upside down or right to left.

That's good to hear, was worried that it was a design fault! Looks like my kit is stuck in the customs office for the weekend, fingers crossed I'll have it next week!!!

I actually raced yesterday. Realized my body choice was good. The body pushed the bumper to the carpet after losing a body clip. The fix trashed the body! The car ran very good. This weekend weather permitting I'll try outdoors. Thanks to AH for the final adjustments and help yesterday.
